On Monday, certain international economic strategies were proposed by Foreign Affairs Minister Julie Bishop, Trade and Investment Minister Andrew Robb and Indigenous Affairs Minister Senator Nigel Scullion during a joint media release. The main purpose of the strategies is to make sure the indigenous Australia as well as other countries share a stronger bond, thereby enhancing their international, social and economic prospects.

The proposal include the first ever strategy for developing the interests of the people around Australia and the world has been announced. The novel strategy would allow the Australians to work with the international partners and the UN so that they can collectively encourage the foreign policies for the people across the country and all over the nation.

“Australia has a leadership role to play in shaping the international agenda on indigenous issues,” Bishop said. She further ensured that this strategy would inspire the native Australians to participate and aid the programs and thereby build on their experience as far as delivering services in regional, rural and remote communities are concerned.

With the help of this international economic strategy, the participation of the indigenous people of the country will provide support for its economic integration with Asia.

Robb stated that there are many opportunities through this strategy that would lead the businesses to capitalise leading to the future development. “Indigenous Australians have a particularly important role to play in promoting Australia as a premium tourism destination and in the economic development of northern Australia, in areas such as agriculture,” he said.  

“What we have learnt in Australia is that indigenous program and policies will not succeed unless there is community buy-in from the ground-level. It is great to see that this strategy continues this Government’s approach and delivers practical benefits for indigenous people,” Scullion said showing support for the program.

In addition to all the above benefits, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Trade promised to enhance recruitment, retention and career development for the employees of Indigenous Australia.
